Movie Review

Daniel and I love watching movies together and I just wanted to recommend a great movie to you all called Dangerous Calling. This movie was directed by Josh and Jeremiah Daws, friends from my Childhood Church, Floyd Springs Baptist.

I gave Daniel this movie as part of his Christmas and we watched it together Christmas Day. It was so much better than I expected! I usually get frustrated watching low budget independent films because the acting is often poor but that was not the case in Dangerous Calling! The acting in this movie was very impressive. The entire film was very professionally done. It is a story about a young pastor and his wife taking on a new Church. Having just been fired from their previous church for standing up for what was right, they were ready to settle down for the long haul without the drama and contention that pastors sometimes face. But, nothing could prepare them for what they would face at First Baptist as they struggled to keep their values and avoid confrontation. This is a suspense filled thriller that will keep you guessing about the outcome while at the same time presenting a powerful message. Although this movie goes to the extreme, it does a great job depicting the spiritual warfare that really does go on in churches across the country. This movie would not be appropriate for my 3 and 4 year old boys to watch but I don't see how any teenager or adult could watch it and not enjoy it! I don't want to give the movie away, but one of my favorite parts is a scene involving a snake in the house! Daniel could tell you that I almost squeezed his arm off during that part. It was also fun for me to see so many places and people in the film that I recognized from my childhood. This would be an awesome film to watch and discuss in your church small group. It has a very deep message that everyone needs to hear! Although this movie has a different style than Facing the Giants and Fireproof, you will definitely enjoy Dangerous Calling just as much! I appreciated how instead of focusing solely on light suface issues like so many christian films do, it really dug deep into the spiritual warfare that Pastors/Christians so often face. The movie lasts about an hour and half and if your interested in seeing it you can read more about it and purchase it here at http://www.dangerouscalling.com/ and you can also watch the trailer here at http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Ftinyurl.com%2F7psg6m&h=b093a4a71abbee83c1cbdaca8552c1ae

It was really good wasn't it? We watched it a couple of weeks ago, and I was pretty impressed. Makes me proud to say I knew 'em back in the day. I thought the beginning choking scene was a little long--I don't watch a lot of violence--but other than that, I really did enjoy watching it.
